Despite learning Swiss German, I still can’t describe where I live without evoking squints and blank stares. Why? I live in a town with an umlaut.
Meilen is just down the road from me, refreshingly free of vowels I can’t say and chock full of great spots for sketching.
My grandfather used to finish all of his stories with that line “How do you like them apples?” and I thought of him as I was sketching this juicy “Jonagold” from Stäfa’s orchards.
Read a bit about my story in an interview with Charlie O’Shields at Doodlewash by clicking on the sketch.
